However, it’s better to try and air dry them as much as you can. The natural sunlight will help to bleach any stains and will act as a disinfectant. And the fresh air will help to release any trapped smells from the tea towels’ fibres. Once you’ve washed your tea towels, dry them. You shouldn’t leave wet tea towels hanging around because they’ll go smelly, bacteria may start setting up home in the fabric, and mould will start to thrive. In theory, you should have a separate hand towel and dish towel, but in practice most of us use one for everything. If you do use the same one for hands and dishes, as well as mopping up spills, be extra vigilant about washing it frequently, to avoid a build up of bacteria. How do you remove stains on tea towels?

If your tea towel smells, swap it for a fresh one immediately. Likewise, if it’s soaking wet, it’s time to get a clean, dry one out. If you’ve used it to mop up spills or there’s visible food on it, throw it in the washing machine and get a replacement. Should you wash tea towels separately?

Hang your tea towel up when you’re done using it. Plenty of air will reach the material and will also begin to dry it. Whether used to dry the dishes, remove hot trays from the oven, wipe up spills, or cover food, a tea towel is an essential item in your kitchen. And while the more germ-phobic amongst us are strict about washing tea towels as part of the daily kitchen clean, others might wait until it’s a bit smelly or looks grubby. Generally, you should wash tea towels on their own, so you can prevent the cross-contamination of germs. Hand-washing tea towels is also an option. All you need to do is apply the steps above, but instead of using a machine, you clean the tea towels in a tub or sink.Store clean tea towels folded in the kitchen. The best place is near the sink, so you can easily grab a fresh one in a hurry. When a tea towel is in use, always hang it to allow it to dry; never leave it crumpled on the worktop. And while it’s tempting to hide tea towels away by hanging them on a hidden hook inside a cupboard – this is also a no-no. With little air circulation, damp tea towels won’t dry and will become a potential breeding ground for bacteria. How do you know when a tea towel is too old to use? Tea towels get wet, are used to mop up food waste, become riddled with liquids and grease, and because they’re usually damp, they can encourage mould growth. In turn, the tea towels turn into a circus for bacteria and become super unsanitary. If you don’t have an outside space, you can use a clothes horse or heated airer. Just be sure to hang your wet tea towels up. You don’t want to leave them in a wet heap as this will lead to problems. As you might’ve guessed, tea towels are normally exposed to lots of dirt, from grease, to food waste, and from grubby water to soap.
